Dylan almost loses a job opportunity at a local inn because of his antics, but he is saved by the lies of Heather, an employee of the inn. When he is caught on camera stealing towels from a summer cottage after a skinny-dipping prank, Dylan and his friends become suspects in a number of cottage robberies. Dylan sets out to learn everything he can about the robberies, in hope of clearing his name, and finds himself in more than one sticky situation in the process.
